    This is a great example of DOOH technology in a secondary environment (healthcare in a supermarket) helping people in a different frame of mind. The supermarket catches people without the stress and worry of a doctor’s surgery which helps with the success of the stations. I assume it is funded by the advertising so it would be interesting to hear some of the advertisers’ thoughts and results.

    The stations are very nice. Great team. Getting Walmart, Inc. was a real coup.
